IDF Research Grant Program
The Immune Deficiency Foundation is the national patient organization dedicated to improving the diagnosis, treatment and quality of life of persons with primary immunodeficiency diseases through advocacy, education and research. Since 2013, IDF Walk for Primary Immunodeficiency has raised more than $3 million. Because of the dollars raised by IDF walk teams and their supporters, IDF has established the IDF Research Grant Program, awarding grants to help improve the diagnosis, treatment and quality of life of people living with PI. Ranging from research on Common Variable Immune Deficiency (CVID), Severe Combined Immune Deficiency (SCID), XMEN and Selective IgA, these researchers are identifying and understanding the underlying issues of these chronic diseases. With research comes better diagnoses, lives and potentially cures for those with PI.
The intent of the grant is to support well-defined research projects that have a specified benefit for improving the treatment, health, disease management or diagnosis of people with primary immunodeficiency diseases (PI). Consideration will also be given to studies that contribute to the body of medical knowledge in PI.
